Cooperation for Social and Civic Competences' Innovative Education

Cooperation for Social and Civic Competences' Innovative Education

Cooperation for Social and Civic Competences

Erasmus Plus Programme 2014-2020
KA 2 – Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices
Strategic Partnership for Youth

The project's idea was born out of the need to improve the methods of educational youth work in order to engage young people in local community activities, active civic and democratic participation such as volunteering, membership in NGO, youth councils as well as using the internet as a way to civic involvement. To achieve that the partnership seeks to provide youth educators with knowledge, methodology and attitudes to make their work in the described area more efficient. Precisely due to the efficiency of the project, we plan to involve young people as experts in solving problems that affect them and their peers.

Partnership organizations (The Umbrella Foundation, The Lithuanian Youth Center, Czech Council of Children and Youth – CRDM) realize educational activities to develop key competences among young citizens in forms of non-formal education. According to the illustrative data and on the base on own experience, the partnership aims to:

  • promote empowerment, participation and active citizenship of young people;
  • support young people to put their ideas into practice with a view of tackling challenges and problems identified within their communities;
  • internationalise youth work, professionalise those who work with youth and to develop their competences;
  • promote stronger coherence between different EU and national transparency and recognition tools, so as to ensure that skills and qualifications can be recognised across borders.

Total duration of the project: 02. 11. 2015 – 02. 11. 2017

Projects' target groups:

  • Young people - both those who are already active, as well as those who are not, with emphasis on youth with fewer opportunities (including NEETs);
  • Youth educators and youth workers.

There is lack of cooperation between providers of similar actions for youth in partnership countries, as well as is not taken into consideration the experience of other countries in this regard. Certain types of youth activities are developed to varying degrees in different European countries. So it is important to gather this experience and adapt it to other countries. That is the reason why the project should be carried out transnationally.
